Trustees sought for Jamie project

Restaurant profits will go to the Fifteen Foundation
TV chef Jamie Oliver's newest project, a branch of his Fifteen restaurant in Cornwall, is looking for 12 trustees.

Fifteen Cornwall, which will be based at Watergate Bay in Newquay, will be the latest of Oliver's attempts to help young people train in catering.

The trustees would be responsible for the charity which runs the restaurant.

Henry Ashworth, from the Extreme Academy, where the restaurant will be based, says they will have a vital role to play.

Potential candidates

"We are looking for people who will make sure the charity's agenda is at the top of Cornwall's agenda," he said.

The purpose of Fifteen, which is due to open in May 2006, is to inspire disadvantaged local young people to train for and enter a career in the restaurant business.

Following the format of Jamie Oliver's original Fifteen restaurant in London, Fifteen Cornwall will sit alongside sister restaurants in London and Amsterdam.

Fifteen local youngsters aged between 16 and 24, from disadvantaged backgrounds, will train and work in the restaurant, supported by professional chefs and college training.

To equip Fifteen with its staff, youth careers and advisory service Connexions Cornwall and Devon will be working with Oliver's team to help them find potential candidates.

All profits from the Fifteen restaurants go to the Fifteen Foundation and in Cornwall all profits from Fifteen Cornwall will go to The Cornwall Foundation of Promise.
